Ted Cruz and Rick Perry Weigh in On Kermit Gosnell Ruling


Some officeholders from Texas have weighed in on an abortion doctor in Philadelphia being found guilty of first degree murder of three babies born alive.

Kermit Gosnell was found guilty on Monday of first-degree murder in those deaths, and was acquitted in the death of a fourth baby. He was also found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the overdose death of a patient, according to the Associated Press.

Prosecutors in the case said that 72-year-old Gosnell would deliver babies alive, and would sever their spines with scissors to kill them.

The Associated Press reports that the prosecution said the baby in whose death Gosnell was cleared let out a whimper before being killed. Gosnell’s defense said there were no live births at the clinic.

Texas U.S. Senator Ted Cruz weighed in, saying:

“No court can ever provide proper relief for the unimaginable pain that Kermit Gosnell inflicted on women and their children. His atrocities shed light on the truly gruesome acts of late-term abortion. We need to keep working to prevent such crimes against humanity–deliberate infanticide–from happening again. May we all remember this heart-breaking case as a vivid example of the urgent need to protect innocent human life at all stages.”

Texas Governor Rick Perry also voiced his opinion:

“This trial and verdict shed light on a detestable and gruesome industry that takes the lives of hundreds of thousands of babies every year in communities across our nation. Those of us who believe in the sanctity of life will continue to fight for the day when abortion is nothing more than a sad footnote in American history.”

Gosnell could face the death penalty.
